Diverse minds

Building a diverse talent pipeline at all levels of our organisation requires AstraZeneca to be a place where everybody, from all backgrounds, can feel a sense of belonging. By ensuring that AstraZeneca is the best that it can be, means our science will be as innovative as it can be and together, we harness our collective creativity and passions and do great things. Our agenda is flexible and our mission is strong: remove barriers and liberate minds.

As a global organisation, we support a number of recognition events and days every year, such as International Women’s Day and Pride. These are culturally important to our team and we take the opportunity to celebrate and educate colleagues on a broad variety of topics that reflect the rich diversity of our workforce.

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)

Our employee-led groups reflect shared affinities, identities, experiences and challenges. They exist to provide support to colleagues, raise awareness and promote the positive impact of diversity, both to business and to society.

Our ERGs are managed by volunteers across our global organization. They are dedicated to building environments where employees feel safe to be themselves at work. They are forums that foster equity and belonging, and they are open to all employees allowing every one of us to be part of much wider, interconnected communities.

Our ERGs are fundamental in shaping a better AstraZeneca. They provide a way for the business to listen and learn about the needs of every individual, and they allow us to better understand one another and our patients.
